Ke$ha fans watch ‘Die Young’ and live like socialist Sandra Flukes

Ke$ha makes millions encouraging young women to give in to their basest desires, but what’s not included in her videos about orgies on the hood of a car are the MTV teenage deadbeat moms who destroyed their lives emulating the skanky star.

Like clockwork, pop star Ke$ha is out with a new single, and (surprise!), it’s another anthem celebrating youth orgies and debauchery and the desires of the flesh. Sure, feminists once fought for a whole laundry list of basic civil rights, but today they can sit back and relax because Ke$ha is on the case, making sure your little girl’s highest aspiration is to strip naked for random dudes in a drunken stupor.

‘Die Young’ has already been viewed millions of times on YouTube, and like most of the star’s songs, it is slick. The lyrics aren’t William Blake, but we’ll get to that later:

Young hunks, taking shots
Stripping down to dirty socks
Music up, gettin’ hot
Kiss me, give me all you’ve got
It’s pretty obvious that you’ve got a crush (you know)
That magic in your pants, it’s making me blush (for sure)

Looking for some trouble tonight
Take my hand I’ll show you the wild side
Like it’s the last night of our lives
We’ll keep dancing till we die

I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums
Oh what a shame that you came here with someone
So while you’re here in my arms,
Let’s make the most of the night like we’re gonna die young

Personally, the story worth telling about Ke$has isn’t about the artist at all; there have always been people who make big bucks peddling sex. The real story is that we have an entire culture that idolizes people like her, and then they wind up like “Jenelle” from MTV’s “Teen Moms.”

If you don’t know Janelle, she’s the winner who got knocked up as a teenager, can’t stop smoking pot and ultimately has to decide whether or not to go to jail or extend her probation as a consequence of her reckless behavior. Janelle wants to go to jail and put her past behind her, but one thing prevents her from doing so: a Ke$ha concert that would take place during her sentence.

Teen Mom Jenelle: No, no, you don’t understand. This is my idol. She’s like my idol, and I’m never going to be able to see her if … Can’t you call [the judge]? Isn’t there some way …

Lawyer: I am not mentioning the concert.

Teen Mom Jenelle: I really can’t miss that concert. I really can’t.That’s why I got all these feathers in my hair — because of the concert. I bought clothes for the concert. I set up hotel rooms for the concert. … Like, like, no one understands how important this concert is to me. It’s not just a concert. It’s Kesha, like. It’s the person. … It’s Kesha, like, my idol — the girl that I watch videos on YouTube 30 times a day. I’m obsessed with this girl.

Political junkies familiar with Sandra Fluke take note: Our culture is creating millions of Janelles every year. They are selfish. They are ignorant. They live in the moment and when the repercussions of their actions boomerang back on them they act like it’s society’s job to make things right. If the Janelles of the world don’t even respect their own bodies and personal property, it’s a good bet that when they go to the voting booth they’re going to vote for the worldview that pats them on the head (or the baby belly when the father isn’t around) and says, “It’s not your fault. It’s that rich guy’s fault. It’s that old white guy’s fault. It’s that businessman’s fault.”

Every time I hear a conservative say that social issues don’t matter, I cringe. They do. Immensely. That doesn’t mean that they need to be talked about in the language of an Evangelical preacher, but a society without a moral compass is a society that will embrace socialism in a heartbeat.

But I digress. The point is, the cultural war in the United States (and Western Civilization at large) has been battled for ages . Take William Blake’s Marriage of Heaven and Hell, for instance:

As I was walking among the fires
of Hell, delighted with the enjoyments
of Genius, which to Angels look like
torment and insanity, I collected some
of their proverbs, thinking that as the
sayings used in a nation mark its
character, so the proverbs of Hell show
the nature of infernal wisdom better
than any description of buildings or
garments. …

The road of excess leads to the
palace of wisdom.

Prudence is a rich ugly old maid
courted by Incapacity.

He who desires, but acts not, breeds

Now read from The Spiritual Heritage of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, by Francois Ducaud-Bourget:

The sensual person finally finds himself completely a slave of his appetites: laziness, gluttony, or voluptuousness, a trilogy often fusing in the same individual to annihilate his real personality and suppress his spiritual, fecund, and creative virility.

Against all the forms of egotism summarized in those three capital sins, against that unrestrained love of self (or rather, against that blind hatred of self) which makes of the individual the center of the universe and sacrifices the whole world to his appetites and desires, against that monstrous caricature of real love which forgets itself in order to procure happiness for others, against the blasphemy of the self-centered flesh which sets itself up as the god and universal rule of creation, the Order of St. John of Jerusalem supposes the virtue of chastity which, strangling the interest which each person has in himself and the appeals of a nature which promises pleasure, but brings only disillusionment, affords us the real and noble joy of being our own masters and of making our own that Law we have received and heartily accepted, and finally, of accomplishing the noble and exalting sacrifices required to fulfill the Christian ideal.

One needs only to compare the intellectual plane that Blake and Ducaud-Bourget are operating on with that of Ke$ha and her fans to see just how far Western Civilization has fallen. If you had to choose, would you say the education system, our popular culture and our media fall on the side of the poet Blake or The Knights of Malta? The answer is quite obvious, and if we reap what we sow, it will be interesting to see the weeds in the garden a few generations from now.

Enjoy your millions, Ke$ha. I wish you the best, although I can’t help but ask (and apologies to the Apostle Mark for butchering 8:36): For what shall it profit a skank if she shall gain the whole world but lose her soul?

PS: Nice upside-down crosses in the video. I noticed nothing in ‘Die Young’ aims to upset Muslims. Telling.

The United States of Apology

We're a nation that now demands apologies for the slightest offense, even if they lack the substance of sincerity. It takes a special kind of insecurity to tie up multiple news cycles on radio talk show hosts when the national debt is over 15 trillion dollars.

The outrage over Rush Limbaugh’s “slut” jokes this week, the demands for an “apology”, and the eventual concession by the radio host is just another example of the sad state of affairs the country is in. If I was a partisan hack I’d say that it all began with Barack Obama’s apology tour of the world, which shows no sign of letting up, judging by the Koran burning incident in Afghanistan. Sadly, the national fixation over apologies has been going on for quite some time, and even my friends on the right have allowed this cultural bug to crawl into their ears and take root in their brain.

Did countless commentators on the left ever apologize to George Bush for the laundry list of ways they compared him to a Nazi for almost eight full years? If so, I can’t remember, but then again I also don’t recall Bush ever being one to play the apology game either.

An apology is something that’s supposed to come from the heart. It’s supposed to come after honest reflection. It is not supposed to come as a result of political pressures, dropped sponsors, or boycotts. Demanding someone say, “I’m sorry” is an exercise only a liberal can love, since they usually imbue certain words with powers that words can never really have. The same people who are enraged at the mere mention of certain words (regardless of the context), also tend to be the same people who need to hear “I’m sorry”, even if it lacks the substance of sincerity.

Every single day top liberal commentators insinuate or outright say that conservatives are racists, bigots, and homophobes. Does that “offend” me? Not really, but if it did I wouldn’t demand an apology. Their words and their actions speak for themselves.Fair-minded individuals are perfectly capable of looking at the details of a story and parsing out the extent to which someone is a jerk or in the wrong. The same goes for stories involving Rush Limbaugh.

On the Sunday morning talk shows, DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz said: “The bottom line is, the leading candidate on the Republican side for president couldn’t even bring himself to call Rush Limbaugh’s comments outrageous and call him out and ask him to apologize.” The response to Wasserman should be: “Get a life. The national debt is at $15,488,891,296,248.02. There are more important things to do than to get embroiled in the on air comments of random radio hosts.”

With everything that the Commander in Chief has on his plate, the notion that he would get involved with the back-and-forth between a radio host and a 30 year old woman attending Georgetown Law is depressing. For someone who campaigned on rising above the fray, all of his actions indicate he’d rather get into the mud to sling clumps. President Obama’s phone call to Sandra Fluke ultimately only serves to distract voters from the tsunami of debt that’s blocking out the sun and about to hit home. When opportunities have given him a chance to become a true statesmen, the president fittingly rose to the level of a community organizer.  Regardless of what one thinks about Rush Limbaugh, there are certainly more appropriate surrogates the president could tap to deal with him. The fact that he chose to directly intervene highlights how vulnerable he would be if only the Republican Party nominated a true statesmen.

The sad part about all of this is, the people who will owe the American people an apology for Washington’s complete and utter failure to address the nation’s debt crisis will disappear when the time comes.
